Newbridge Silverware Belfast | Competition Time

This blog post is about an undiscovered gem right in the centre of Belfast. When I paid a visit to the Newbridge Silverware store on Upper Arthur Street last month, I was genuinely blown away by the gorgeous fit out,  the customer service and the stunning selection of homewares and jewellery. It was way beyond my expectations.

Wearing Midi Lengths in Winter

As the seasons change, I've been asked a few times what to do about the cold leg issue when wearing midi dresses and skirts. I have it covered girls...in a couple of easy steps!

A Confession | Navy Biker Jacket

I have a confession to make. I'm not good with long coats and when I went to put on my Marks & Spencer coat from this previous post on the school run, I just couldn't as it felt too long and big on me. Maybe it wasn't cold or wet enough and I felt too covered up? Maybe I'm just always destined to have wet legs in the rain?

I decided to return it for the size down but it still felt too big. All while the advert for the coat kept popping up on my social media making me want it even more!

When I went back to see if there was a size 6 to try on (there wasn't), I spotted a navy biker and suddenly it all fell into place. When I spotted a fab navy floral midi dress close by, I realised that I could swap the trench for BOTH of these items and once that realisation hit, it was a deal done. Farewell gorgeous trench coat which would keep me warm and dry. 

I may regret this decision but in the meantime, Jess my fabulous photographer Instagram friend took these gorgeous photos of my new navy ensemble....look at how I'm laughing off the colder, wetter days ahead.....I'll be FINE in my short jacket and floaty dress
Navy Ankle Boots - Ash (sale purchase)
Navy Cross Body Bag - Yoshi (past season)

Of course, that still leaves me with a trench coat gap in my wardrobe but it's ok - I've spotted this bottle green one and I'm sitting tight for the next 20% off :)

Zohara AW17 Collection | Navy Cross Body Perfection

There are several items that have consistently eluded me in my 'key pieces' search over the years. Navy features in several of them with a navy cross body up there on the top of the list. Well can I say 'bravo' to Zohara for allowing me to cross that one right off with this beauty from the AW17 collection.
